About
Located on the doorstep of the Swan Valley, Whiteman Park is one of the largest metropolitan recreation and conservation parks in the world. Covering nearly 4,000 hectares, the Park is a place to enjoy life’s simple pleasures – walking or cycling on peaceful bush paths, playing with the kids or simply delighting in the calmness of our unspoilt natural heritage… There’s a lot to see and do including a visit to Caversham Wildlife Park, Motor Museum, Tractor Museum and Revolutions Transport Museum. There’s also Vintage bus, train and tram rides, playgrounds, barbeques and shady picnic areas – you could spend a day there and not see it all!

Friday night walk

Although there were good joining instructions, , the venue was a bit tricky to find as the park is so big. So I arrived in plenty of time . The tour was really enjoyable and our guide was very knowledgable.

Whiteman Park Nocturnal Woylie Walk
Nov. 2021 • Family
A very interesting and well organised nocturnal walk to see the great work being done at Whiteman park to preserve our endangered local wildlife. Presenters were very knowledgeable and professional.
A lovely thing to do on a clear spring evening.

It was an hour long tour and I was worried if she would get bored easily..but these tour is great for kids, they were really Interactive with her and gave her little things to look out for, she was engaged the whole time and absolutely loved it, that she wanted to go on the 1pm tour. Great tour and wonderful volunteers doing it...really recommend

Lovely night - informative and interactive
Oct. 2021
It was a lovely night joining the the woylie walk at Whiteman park. A chance to get some fresh air, do something outside, and get to see native marsupials that you would otherwise not get the chance to see in a natural habitat. A great little activity and very informative.

Great experience
Sep. 2021 • Friends
This is a wonderful park in suburban Perth, great picnic facilities and kids playgrounds. It has great community shops and fantastic museum of transportation. But if you want a great experience l recommend the night Woylie Walks a great great experience for adults and kids alike, plenty of wildlife ( Woylies, quendas, sugar glider and if your lucky owls echidnas or micro bats , a truly great couple of hours for kids anh adults alike. And great guides. Well worth the admission. This is five star

Little furry creatures that live in the forrest
Sep. 2021 • Family
I asked my sixteen year old son (who I struggle to find things to do together with) that we could go see little fury creatures that live in the forrest. He thought I was referring to mythical creatures!! He was intrigued and agreed to attend. Being surprised by the knowledgeable and interesting Reg! The well designed facility and the cute little furry creatures. A evening we will definitely remember!! Thank you

Whiteman Park Nocturnal Woylie Walk
May 2021 • Family
In all we found this quite disappointing. Our reason for doing this walk was capturing photographs of the wildlife at dusk. Also giving our Granddaughter a chance to learn some different photography. There was no prior information that flash was OK albeit to be kept reduced. The walk was very dark by the time we got out there. In my opinion there was too much stopping for talks on dieback of trees. There were only two species on animals (both very similar) all at quite a distance - not as close as shown in the advertising blurb. Also it was not as light as the advertising material suggests. We also were reviewing the venue as a possible outing for our Camera Club but realise that it does not suit that purpose. This event would much more suit those with a deeper interest in conservation. It was the advertising material that made us think it was suitable for photography.

Took the bus tour and was very impressed at the friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. You can see the effort and care put into maintaining the exhibits.

We reckon that this park is a magical place for children and with plenty to interest the not so young. Unfortunately we didn't arrive until after lunch on the Wednesday. Missed out on the vintage train ride which finished at 1.30pm, the electric tram wasn't operating; we headed to the Motor Museum. Plenty to see with the other Transport Museums, the Wildlife Park, the Village Shops, various recreational facilities and bush trails. A range of activities and interests to suit many and certainly a great attraction for young ones.
